Plucked Strings concert 2019

On the Wednesday evening after half-term the new school harp had its first outing in the annual Plucked Strings Concert which saw some lovely solo and ensemble performances on guitar, harp and zither. The programme was highly entertaining with music ranging from In the Bleak Midwinter, played beautifully by Junior Guitar Ensemble in their first performance together this year, to Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight performed by Senior Guitar Ensemble and featuring Alex (U6F) on vocals. Aimee’s (11L) performance also featured singing as she accompanied herself for Walker’s Leave a Light On demonstrating great poise and ability on her guitar. The new harp provided a wonderful opportunity for some duo and ensemble performances on two harps including Hannah (11M) and Charlotte’s (11M) performance of Les Pins de Charlatines by Renié. The evening was a fantastic celebration of music for plucked strings and a great way to introduce the new harp. It was brilliant to see so many students performing so well – thank you to all those involved in putting it together.
